Alana & Joel's Magical Wedding Tale!

Alana prepares to meet her groom at Homestead Park in Hilliard, Ohio."My wedding day is here!", Alana says, as her expectation rises. We were in Columbus, Ohio, and as the wedding officiant for Alana & Joel, I had the privilege of witnessing these beautiful events, and sharing in their special day. I will attempt to recall some of their moments together...with a small amount of poetic license.

Let's look at the image below. Joel has been waiting a while, and from the look on his face you can tell, he is happy with the events of this wonderful day as they are unfolding!

Joel and wedding officiant, Damian King, at Homestead Park in Hilliard"Are you ready for me now?"

Alana gazes into the enclosure where her wedding is about to take place!Who can fault this excited bride for wanting to see where we were and if we were ready? But Joel's look says it all, "I am ready to meet you here, my beautiful bride, my beautiful wife to be."

The groom, Joel and their officiant, Damian King, wait for the bride's entrance"The moments we have waited for are here. In front of all of our family and friends we are exchanging thoughts and vows filled with love and dedication. I am yours for a lifetime, and I am so glad to be standing here with you today."

A precious moment, Alana and Joel in the process of becoming husband and wife.After that wonderful ceremony, I think a hug is in order! You guys were amazing. I so enjoyed sharing in your special moments together!
